Atakilt Wot – Ethiopian Vegetable Dish with Carrots, Cabbage, and Potatoes

I used halved Brussels sprouts in this recipe instead of cabbage, but you could just as easily use thinly sliced cabbage in its place! The instructions won’t change at all. I also included a poblano pepper, which isn’t traditional, but I thought it added another layer to the dish. Omit the pepper if you wish,…
